The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Bill (Don Diamont) will follow through on his plan to crush Liam (Scott Clifton) if his son doesn’t meet him halfway. Of course, a midpoint in Bill’s mind means that an enemy agrees to his terms.
Liam felt that he had to stop his father. Bill broke the law and put people’s lives in jeopardy, regardless of whatever precautions were taken, by ordering the torching of the building Spectra Fashions was working in.
Secretly recording Bill’s arson admission gave Liam digital evidence and the ability to force his dad out of Spencer Publications’ CEO’s chair. He then smartly forwarded a copy to himself by email. However, Bill recently hired a tech guy that Justin (Aaron Spears) recommended. The goal is to hack into Liam’s device and erase existing leverage.
Taking power from Bill meant that Liam needed to be audacious. Yes, that’s our alternative bold reference within today’s feature.
But wouldn’t it stand to reason that Liam also went off the grid in order to create a backup source? If he made a physical copy of the recording, on a cassette tape or a digital recorder that was then put in a safety deposit box, a secondary hammer would have been forged.
Liam knows that his dad is unhinged under normal circumstances, let alone when his power source has been pulled. Considering the expected reaction, Liam surely must have prepared anti-venom that can be administered when the viper strikes.
Bill is a dangerous person. He’s been completely emasculated, in his mind, and lost Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), for real. He holds Liam fully accountable, while paying lip service to Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) regarding remorse. That manipulation effort is purely a ploy to use Liam’s wife against him, if possible.
If Bill’s techie tells him that all known copies of the digital recording have been erased, he’ll believe he’s won. But if the assumed physical copy is revealed, or turned over to the police, Dollar Bill will seethe with rage. At that point, Liam’s life will be in peril.
While it seems unlikely that Bill would make his estranged son disappear, he could have him kidnapped before said evidence is turned over. B&B fans are very familiar with Bill’s capabilities. They know that he’ll do anything to reclaim his throne and exact vengeance as he does.
Liam faces this fight alone. Whether he’ll survive is far from certain, as are Bill’s future plans.
